There is also a special English Grammar & Vocabulary Course [on weekdays], teaching a wide range of English grammar and vocabulary in relation to IELTS. Remember, for IELTS Writing [both Task One and Two] and IELTS Speaking, one quarter of your score is based on Grammar, and another quarter is based on Vocabulary, showing clearly that the serious student of IELTS needs to pay additional attention to these skills. Together they will determine one half of your IELTS score!

… with the third course being a weekend one:

3. Intensive Integrated Saturday/Sunday IELTS Course: 24 classes (2 per day) on Saturdays or Sundays (all day, mornings [9.30 am – 12.45 pm] and afternoons [2.00 – 5.15 pm], with a lunch break in between): 78 hours.

雅思周六/周日密集班課程: 每堂課至少6小時, 共12堂課, 上課時間為每周六或每周日上午和下午全天

The first two Combined Courses (1a/1b  &  2) fit together, so that you can …

  • do one Combined Course (to focus on specific weaknesses), or …
  • do both Combined Courses (to be completely prepared for IELTS),

Remember, you can choose to …

  • do one Combined Course in one term, then the other Combined Course in the following term (to spread the workload over two or three days/week), or …
  • do both Combined Courses in an the same term (5  classes/week for five weeks), if you want to achieve success in IELTS more quickly.

 

Finally, there is the special English Grammar & Vocabulary Course, 5 classes on each skill: 33 hours 兩種技巧各5堂課, Afternoons Only: Tuesdays and Thursdays (2.00 – 5.15 pm)

 

Note

All the lessons for all courses are delivered in fixed components, so that if you miss a class (due, for example, to sickness), you can make up the lost class in another course running at the same time, or later.

 

Individual IELTS-Skills Courses

You can also choose to do IELTS Individual-Skills courses:

  • IELTS Reading: every Tuesday night, for five lessons,
  • IELTS Speaking: every Thursday night for five lessons,
  • IELTS Writing: every Monday, Wednesday, and Friday for four weeks [=12 lessons],
  • IELTS Listening: one Monday, Wednesday, and Friday [=3 lessons].

… but the Combined Courses are cheaper for you (the student), and I (as a teacher) obviously want to be able to prepare you as best as I can for the IELTS test, so doing the Combined Courses is encouraged.

The English Grammar & Vocabulary Course must be done together, because both components (grammar and vocabulary) are combined together in all classes, in order to provide the most effective learning.

General Warning: Be Careful About ‘Short’ Courses

At AIS, the ‘total’ preparation for all skills (Writing, Reading, Listening, and Speaking) consists of over 80 hours of direct teaching with the teacher, given in 25 individual lessons. In addition to this, there is homework in every lesson, consisting of Reading (of reading passages and tips from the book), IELTS Writing Assignments (9 pieces), and vocabulary exercises (from all the books), as well as independent research. AIS offers a full and comprehensive course.

There are many much shorter courses offered by other institutes and other teachers, but please note that very short IELTS Preparation courses …

(1) might seem cheap, but the course can be very costly per hour, and …

(2) these courses must necessarily provide limited preparation for the IELTS test.

Yes, short courses are easy to decide to do, quickly and easily completed, and seemingly cheap – but do they do the job? Do they prepare you with the full range of skills necessary in order to be fully prepared for the IELTS Test? The document shown at the top of this page shows the minimum amount of hours needed (80), based on my assessment and my experience of teaching IELTS Preparation [and that’s over 25 years of it!]. Each of the 25 lessons described is full of teaching, ideas, and practice, and the pace is fast, and delivered efficiently and effectively with very sophisticated PowerPoint programs. Any IELTS Course shorter than this would leave you NOT prepared to the degree that I, as the teacher, expect – and I cannot do that.

So, remember, when comparing IELTS courses among schools, …

(1) always calculate the cost per hour [not just the cost of the course], and …

(2) remember that short courses are short for a reason, and …

(3) keep in mind that the most important aspect is the TEACHER, and his/her qualifications and credentials. [Remember, be critical, skeptical, and demand proof].
